Gibson J-45 player Sunny Sweeney is one of the three nominees in The Academy of Country Music Awards’ New Female Vocalist of the Year category.

“Getting nominated for ACM New Female Vocalist is maybe the coolest thing to happen to me,” said Sunny. “I've been playing country music in honky-tonks and dive bars for almost a decade, so finally getting this kind of recognition is absolutely HUGE! I started out playing in Texas for beer and cheeseburgers, so this is just so gratifying!”
